Sometimes, judges disqualify a jury's verdict as being excessive, if they believe it's not acceptable in the particular circumstances.
"One bite rule "one bite rule" rule is that the owner of the dog is not responsible for the first time bite. The liability of the owner is determined by whether the dog has previously bitten anyone before. In other words when the dog has not ever bitten anyone before or bitten someone who was in trespass, the owner of the dog isn't accountable to any injury that could be caused by a subsequent incident.
